The 8 most beautiful sights and museums to visit in Purmerend
Purmerend is especially known among the elderly among us for its livestock markets. The name of the main square, the Koemarkt, and the striking image of the cows you can find there, remind of that time. Unfortunately, after the many animal diseases in the past, the square has lost its function in this area. The square is now mainly used for other markets and the annual large-scale fair. Another nice point to visit is the Melkwerkbrug on the east side of the city centre. From this high striking bridge you have a beautiful view of the surroundings and the city centre.
